Misako: But where's my son?
Ronin: We need to evacuate everyone out of this town. Like, now!
Kai: What is that thing?
Cole: I know one thing, she ain't pretty.
Jay: Ew, gross! I'm about to lose my lunch.
(They project their powers at the beast, but she remains unaffected.)
Zane: She didn't notice that.
Jay: Oh, I hate unbeatable creatures.
Ronin: (To the citizens) Hurry, on board!
Wu: This way.
Misako: Look, it's Lloyd!
Ronin: That's not Lloyd.
Wu: It's Morro.
Morro: (Laughs.) You were wrong about me, Sensei. You said destiny didn't want me to be the Green Ninja. Well, I make my own destiny. And now yours is coming to an end.
Morro: You made me believe I was to become the Green Ninja. Now I am!
(The Preeminent grabs Misako.)
Morro: The more souls the Preeminent takes, the bigger she gets. Say goodbye to your loved ones, and say goodbye to Ninjago!
Ronin: Warm up that paddle. We're leaving when they get back.
(Zane saves someone from the Preeminent's grasp.)
Woman: Thank you.
Nya: Get to the ship, hurry!
Zane: I don't know how to stop this thing! It just keeps coming!
Kai: (Kai uses his Aeroblade to slice off her tentacle.) Ah, you stop one, two more grow in its place. (The Preeminent destroys Jay's vehicle.) If there ever was a time to unlock your True Potential, sis, it's now.
Nya: Let me just flip the switch. Oh yeah, I'm not a Nindroid. I don't have a switch!
Cole: My bike's made of Deepstone. How about I jam it down her gullet? Cover me!
Misako: (She grunts as she tries to free herself. Wu tries to help, but the Preeminent separates them.) Ah. Wu!
Cole: Like cake? How's this for your pie hole? Ninja, go! (He lands the bike in the mouth of the Preeminent.)
Misako: (Screams as the Preeminent drops her.)
Wu: (He uses Spinjitzu to catch Misako.) Got you.
Jay: Thanks, Cole. You only made her madder.
Cole: And there goes a perfectly good bike.
Kai: If Lloyd's inside that thing, we have to get closer!
Jay: Yeah, easier said than done!
(Inside the Cursed Realm, Lloyd wakes up and runs in the opposite direction of the Ghost Warrior spawn site.)
Chen: Who was that? Was that Lloyd?
Clouse: (Trying to break the bars with a nail file) You're seeing things again, Master Chen.
Lloyd: (Pants and sees Garmadon in the distance, chained up.) Dad!
Garmadon: Lloyd? (Lloyd hugs him.) My son.
Lloyd: I'll get you out of here, Dad. (He tries to break the chains.)
Garmadon: There's no use. These chains will not break.
Lloyd: Where are we?
Garmadon: The Cursed Realm is the Preeminent, and the Preeminent is the Cursed Realm. Son, you're in the belly of the beast. But if you're in here...
Lloyd: Morro is the Green Ninja. And he's stolen the Realm Crystal. I tried, Father...
Garmadon: You must not give up. If he has the Crystal, all is endangered.
Lloyd: But how? I'm not the Green Ninja anymore.
Garmadon: It was never the color of the gi that made you who you are. It was the color of your heart. Don't give up.
Lloyd: I won't, Father.
Garmadon: You must leave here and destroy the Preeminent. Save Ninjago. Save the Realms.
Lloyd: But if I destroy it, it could destroy you.
Garmadon: Whatever happens to me, wherever I am, I will always be with you. There comes a time when every boy must become a man. What sort of man, is up to him.
(Back outside, the ninja are trying to restrain the Preeminent.)
Nya: I thought you were gonna get closer?
Kai: You don't think I'm trying?
Wu: It's too late. We have to get to the ship and protect the people.
Jay: But what about Lloyd?
Misako: Ugh. This is what Lloyd would've wanted.
Kai: To the ship, but we're not leaving anyone else behind!
Zane: Whoa! (The Preeminent grabs the Ice Mech, ejecting Zane.)
Wu: (To two citizens still left behind) Follow me! That's all of them. We need to get this ship to sea to put as much water between us as possible.
Ronin: No problem. (Ronin cuts the rope with the Sword of Sanctuary.) Maybe one problem. (He sees Morro land in front of him.)
Cole: It's Morro!
Jay: Look out, Ronin!
Kai: I'll get him. (He's about to use Fire, but Morro blows him back.)
Ronin: Go, get out of here! I got this! (They fight, with Morro tearing down the bridge.)
Nya: Is this as fast as it goes?
Ship Captain: (Nonchalantly) It's a paddle steamer, not a rocket ship.
(Morro laughs as he disarms Ronin. Lloyd, in Garmadon's robes, jumps in and takes the sword.)
Morro: What? You again?
Lloyd: Yeah, I'm back. I believe you have something of mine. (Morro looks at the crystal and attacks him.) Try this!
Jay: Yeah, all right, Lloyd!
Wu: Look! He got his father's robes.
Lloyd: Ronin, get to the ship and protect the people. Ninja, take out the stilts. We need to drop the Preeminent into the sea.
Jay: Ugh, why didn't we think of that earlier?
Cole: That's why he's the leader.
Ninja: Ninja, go! (They use Airjitzu to return to the city.)
Lloyd: Let me handle the blowhard.
Morro: You think you're better than me? No one is better than me! (They start fighting.)
Kai: Let's give that slimeball a bath. (They use their Aeroblades to break the bridge.)
Morro: No, they're taking out the supports!
Ninja: Ninja, go!
Morro: Noooo! (He uses the Crystal to teleport behind Lloyd a couple times. He laughs evilly.) Protect the Preeminent! Protect the Realm!
Soul Archer: Protect the Preeminent!
Jay: Just when you thought you've seen it all.
Wu: Let's hope it can't swim.
Ronin: We need more speed.
Nya: I've gotta help the ninja.
Ronin: Let me. (He pushes the captain away and maxes out the speed.)
Kai: We have to destroy that thing before it reaches the ship.
(The Preeminent throws a house, making a huge wave.)
Misako: (To a child) It's okay. The ninja will stop it.
Zane: P.I.X.A.L. has detected over five hundred Ghosts aboard this walking fortress, and the number is climbing.
Cole: If we have to destroy this thing one ghost at a time, so be it.
Kai: Aargh! Then I want a front row ticket. (He climbs on the Preeminent.) Ninja, go! (The others follow him with Airjitzu.)
Nya: Hey, guys. Need a hand? (She destroys a few ghosts.)
Cole: Thanks, Nya.
Wrayth: (Grabbing Zane with his Chain Whip.) Got ya. (Laughs.)
Jay: Lightning! (He destroys Wrayth before Zane gets turned into a Ghost.)
Nya: Knock, knock!
Kai: Come on in. Let's rock this house.
Jay: Doctor, it appears our patient needs to have his knee put on ice.
Zane: I'm happy to help.
(Zane uses his Ice, but the Preeminent breaks free and the ninja scream. She tries to walk on the water, but groans in pain.)
Wu: Yes! She's unable to follow us to sea! (However, the Preeminent tries again and succeeds.)
Misako: I thought Ghosts can't stand water. How come it's still after us?
Wu: Have enough Ghosts at your disposal, I guess you can pretty much do anything. Throw anything we don't need off the ship. We need to go faster! Much faster!
(The passengers throw away crates. Meanwhile, Lloyd is still fighting the Spykor.)
Morro: You and I could go on fighting forever...or I could just take the Realm Crystal and leave you behind forever! (He opens another portal.)
Lloyd: You're not getting away! (They travel to the Realm of Madness, where they race each other to retrieve the Crystal. Lloyd opens a portal to Cloud Kingdom, and they fall through the sky, still fighting.)
Monk: (To Nobu) No, we must not dabble in their affairs anymore. This is for them to resolve.
(Then, they travel to Chima.)
Laval: Hey, where'd you guys come from?
(Morro opens another portal without answering.)
Wu: Can we go any faster?
Ronin: It's on full power.
Misako: Head for that fog bank for cover!
Nya: (Grunts) Kai, watch out!
Kai: (He falls off the house.) Aah!
Cole: I got you! (Kai just passes through him.) Huh? I guess not.
Kai: Ugh, no. (He grabs on to a plank.) I can't swim!
Cole: I can't get wet!
(The plank breaks, and Kai spots Soul Archer. He dives under the water.)
Soul Archer: You have to come up for air at some time, Fire Ninja. (Laughs. Kai comes up for air.)
Zane: Kai! Shoot fire now!
Zane: Ice! (Their powers combine to create water, which dissolves Soul Archer.)
Jay: Yeah! Fire and Ice make water, nice! And one more Ghost is toast.
Zane: As iron sharpens iron...
Kai: Brother sharpens brother.
(More Ghosts spawn out of the Preeminent.)
Kai: Aw, are you kidding me? Even our coolest moves aren't helping anything.
Nya: We obviously aren't doing any good here. We need to protect the ship.
Jay: Ladies first.
Nya: Ninja, go! (She and the others retreat to the ship.)
Wu: If we're gonna destroy the Preeminent, we're gonna have to do more.
Ronin: Speaking of more, we need more fuel. If we turn back now, we'll have just enough to get us to shore. Otherwise, if we reach Hollow's Trench, we'll be sitting ducks out there.
Kai: Hollow's Trench. Do you think it's deep enough to drown that giant thing?
Wu: One way to find out. Full steamer ahead!
(The passengers scream as the Preeminent takes out the paddles.)
Cole: Oh, no!
Morro: (Laughs and checks the portal.) I did it. I finally got rid of you!
Wu: (In Nya's mind, while memories from her past flash by.) Until you embrace what holds you back, you'll never discover your True Potential. Your weakness is you give up too easily. You only like what comes easy. Don't be afraid to fail, Nya. (Nya unlocks her True Potential.)
Cole: Not Morro, Nya!
Kai: She's unlocked her True Potential!
Morro: Nooooo! (Grunts.) Nooo!
(Nya summons a giant wave which drowns the Preeminent, and everyone cheers. Wu summons his dragon and finds Morro struggling to break free of the Preeminent's grasp.)
Wu: Take my hand!
Morro: Why? So you can take the Realm Crystal and use it to find your own prized pupil?
Wu: You are all my prized pupils, but none of us can do this alone. You're strong, Morro, but it takes others to make us stronger. Even me. Take my hand, so we can be stronger together. Please, Morro!
Morro: (He grabs Wu's hand.) You can only save those who want to be saved. Goodbye, Sensei. (He gives Wu the Crystal before letting go, allowing himself to be pulled into the water.)
Wu: Morro! (Later, he uses the Crystal to bring back Lloyd.)
Kai: Haha, all right!
Jay: Whoo, haha!
Misako: Lloyd, you made it!
Lloyd: And so did you.
Zane: Good to have you back. You just missed—
Lloyd: Oh, I know what I missed. I caught a glimpse of what would happen next, (He glances at the Sword of Sanctuary.) and knew Morro had to return alone. Just 'cause I'm the Green Ninja, doesn't mean I have to save the day. Especially when I have friends to rely on.
Misako: And that's why destiny chose you.
Wu: It appears your father's robe has imparted wisdom, but you still have a lot to master to earn the Sensei title.
Lloyd: If that's the path I'm on, I'll take it one step at a time. The Cursed Realm is gone...and so is my father...but I know we're all in a better place.
Cole: Some of us may look a little different, but like our team, some things never change.
Nya: And if they do... that's okay. Sometimes, we just need to go with the flow.
Kai: 'Cause even if the path isn't always straight, we go forward, with confidence, because we trust where we're headed.
Jay: Yeah, and speaking of where we're headed, I've been dying to know. What are the other Realms like, Lloyd? C'mon, spill it. We have to know what we're saving, right?
Lloyd: Let's just say, the future looks bright. For us, and for Ninjago.
